    There is something self-contradictory in Russia's behavior. On the one hand she objects to Iran enriching Uranium even to the low 3.5% level for power plants, and on the other hand supplies Iran and the Busher reactor with such processed product which allows Iran to keep her stock of Uranium. A good solution for the contradiction would be for Russia to demand from Iran partial payment "in kind" for future reactors it will build, that is, pay for the fuel rods by giving to Russia the enriched Uranium used to produce them. This is simply an expansion of the Turkey-Brazil swap idea, and will also be acceptable to Iran. After all, they claim that their Uranium is enriched to serve as fuel. The fact is that Iran does not have enough Uranium to run many power plants, so they will run out of the stuff soon enough. Problem solved. Incidentally, I would keep the sanctions on as long as Iran continues to defy the UN.
